Neil Young Headlines Global Fest
Global Fest 2012 is going to be one of the most epic concerts of the year with headliners Neil Young, Foo Fighters and The Black Keys on September 29, and the best part about this concert which will be held at Central Park in New York City is that it is free!! You read correctly it is free, however there is a catch you have to have a ticket, no admittance without a ticket but do not worry all you have to do is join the movement and become a Global Citizen! The mission statement for Global Citizen, “Is a tool to amplify and unite a generation’s call for justice. It’s a place for you to learn, and act, to bring an end to extreme poverty.” The site goes on to state that there are 1.3 billion people who are deprived of their basic rights and opportunities which is “unjust and unacceptable.” To be eligible to go to the Neil Young concert you have to earn at least 3 points on the Global Citizen page, and once you sign up you will be able to take action and be able to earn points towards the concert in particular and other rewards as well. Earning points is as easy as watching a short video which will earn you one point, but if you are serious about going to that concert you are going to want to call your representative in Congress because that my friend will having you making it rain in points with 10 big ones! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask question and learn more about this awesome opportunity. There must some big money behind this movement or Neil Young, Foo Fighters and The Black Keys are basically doing this concert for free, because the site states that they are in the beginning stages of the project, but it will soon become a world wide movement if everyone who has a computer joins as soon as they hear about it, even if they do not go to the concert, I am going to sign up and if I get those free tickets I will decline them for someone else, because I cannot get off from work right now plus, going to New York ain’t cheap, but if you live in the city you have no excuse not to go in fact if you live in Manhattan and do not sign up for the global poverty project www.globalcitizen.org then why are you even living in the city because I thought that paying that high rent was because you get to do cool stuff like this?
